Where do OKRs come from?
OKRs evolved from the DNA of Peter Drucker’s Management by Objectives (MBOs). They were first introduced by Andy Grove at Intel in the 1970s. OKRs were then adopted by Google in the late 1990s and have since taken Silicon Valley and the rest of the world by storm.
OKRs are the ultimate way for companies to establish focus and align teams around company goals. They embed transparency into the culture of organizations and engage everyone to deliver their best work in pursuit of a shared purpose.
